About
Only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver, allow 2 - 3 hours for your visit to Vancouver's iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge, hanging 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. The park offers more than just the bridge. Its surrounding 27 acres celebrate nature, history and culture in unique and thrilling ways. No more so than with the newest attraction, CLIFFWALK. Cliffwalk hangs for 213m (700ft) and reaches 91m (300ft) high, hugging the granite cliffside and offering a panoramic view of the thriving rainforest and canyon far below. On Treetops Adventure venture from one magnificent old growth Douglas-fir to another on a series of seven elevated suspension bridges, reaching as high as 110 feet (33m), for a squirrel's eye view of the forest. Guides, signage and interactive exhibits throughout the park help you in your understanding of rainforest ecosystems and their sustainability.

I've lived within 100 km of this site and, at 58, this was my first visit. I was gobsmacked! It was fantastic. The bridge itself is the focal point but the entire experience was so much more than that. The cliffwalk was stunning, the First Nations history was informing, the raptors were thrilling and the canopy walks were beautiful.

It's a bit pricey but they have a deal for BC residents where your entry fee for one visit becomes your annual pass.

We drove to North Vancouver from another lower mainland city on Dec 3,345pm for the Christmas Lights Display. It is good to get there at this time of season around 4pm as then you can see the trees, lights, area if not familiar here. The staff are just so friendly, pleasant, some even walking past you saying hi, have a good time, and even a Chinese young boy cleaning the traffic cross walk buttons and answered our questions, great everyone.! My wife and I are seniors in our 70's and no problem walking the bridge or the scenic routes. The new colored changing water fall was so great! So amazing how you could get those Christmas lights so high in the trees, out to the wide branches. The ground blue lights near the stream were very interesting. But we liked the tunnel changing lights at the cliff hanger area. Wow!! We were busy, takes at least 2hrs and longer if doing the tree to tree paths. This is family friendly yes but remember, different experience in the dark up high and bridge does bounce a little if other people walking. Staff in all areas very nice, helpful, smiling, courteous and am sure watching activities of people. Tks for the gift shop now open. We bought fudge a few pieces but really did not like it, as got hard the next day and very dry. Definitely worth the experience as they say over 1.5 million and this year more displays. We stayed over night at the Pinnacle Hotel that gives free entrance passes here, as we were not from Vancouver area. The evening experience due to no breeze, warm, nice staff was worth it. Thank You! Longbeach.

Lived here for decades and never been through the park. Mostly because you have to pay and there are many trails in the area into the forest that are spectacular even without the high suspension bridge. The elevated walk through the trees was great for the perspective.

I realize that this attraction is not aimed at people who hike, or even walk outside often. Instead, it's a "nature light" experience for people who come on tour busses or want to see some nice trees without having to get their shoes muddy or accidentally walking off the boardwalk into bear country. The warning signs will definitely teach you that coming in direct contact with nature is a scary proposition.

But, c'mon, the prices they charge for this experience are just extortion. We were able to find some (slightly) discounted tickets 3 days in advance online, which meant my wife and I eeked out at just under a hundred dollars for admission, but then we got nailed with the mandatory 3 hour parking fee upon arrival. How someone could legit spend three hours there is another puzzling question. Maybe if they're eating nineteen dollar hamburgers at the snack bar (NOT exaggerating) or shopping at the massive overpriced gift shop.

So, what is the attraction like? A short boardwalk hiking trail, a cliffside walk (the highlight, honestly) and the suspension bridge itself which overlooks... Um... A river. Well, to be fair it's a river and some crappy condo/apartment complex. You'd think there might be an incredible waterfall or something under the bridge, but there really isn't beyond some artificial water features that cascade into artificial ponds.

So, anyway, if you meet the criteria in the first paragraph, feel free to give this company your hard-earned money. For everyone else, just keep driving a bit further down the road to Lynn Creek. It's completely free (except for cheap parking if you want to park directly at the trailhead), you're allowed to walk past the boardwalks, and the suspension bridge and waterfalls are stunning.

We wanted to come here for dinner at 7pm. When we arrived we were told by the woman at the entrance station
That we had to all pay $59 for each of us (to adults and 2 teens) just for the entrance to the park to get to the restaurant. We said that we just wanted to get to the restaurant and were told that we had to pay the entrance fee to get to
The restaurant. So we would have had to pay $240 just to walk to the restaurant and then pay for dinner as well. Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed and were not willing to pay that much for the walk. This was not a good set up.

Firstly this is a bit of a pricey attraction which had a big influence on the review, it was over $100 for 2 adults and probably only need 2-3 hours to go round so quite expensive when it doesn’t even entertain you all day. The suspension bridge is good, but I wouldn’t say anything special compared to similar things in other countries. The tree top walk is cool and more sturdy than I was expecting and then there is a nature trail which is longer than it looks. Everything is on a board walk so pretty easy to walk along but there are lots of stairs. I enjoyed the cliff top walk and again very sturdy but a bit narrower and then there is a small shack that sells hot chocolate and small snacks and then a big shop and restaurant. There aren’t any particularly good views apart from the river from the suspension bridge and views of the bridge itself, overall it was okay and I’m glad we went but not worth the price.

Almost forgot one of the best bits was the free shuttle which comes every 20 minutes from outside the library, Canada place, Hyatt regency and blue horizon hotel. This was very useful for getting there and back.

We thought we would miss the crowds going on a week day., (Tue). Big mistake. There does not seem to be much control over how many people are in the park at one time. When we arrived the parking lot was full so we had to wait for some one to pull out. The main attraction, the Bridge had approximately 150 people on it when we crossed over each way. As a result you are knocked into other people constantly. . All the other attractions such as the cliff walk were packed with people. We did not enjoy the experience so we left after about 90 min. Not worth the price of admission

Epic experience, we went in July 2022, earlier, to avoid the crowds. A very convenient car park is just across the street. Pay over the phone with the PayByPhone app, you'll thank me later. 136 meters long, tall and narrow, the Capilano Bridge would satisfy your need for adrenaline and breathtaking views. You might find the entrance ticket price a bit pricey, but it's worth it. In addition to learning about the history and importance of the Kia'palano tribe in this region, you can enjoy the set of seven suspension bridges between the trees, the Cliffwalk and the living forest walk. We were happy to use hand sanitizer stations, located in several places in the park and felt safe throughout the journey. Since this isn't your usual neighborhood walk, watch your step while enjoying nature at its best. You will find fair dining options to satisfy your tastes and hunger. Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is not only a memorable experience for everyone (kid friendly), but a must do while in Vancouver. Highly recommended.

Thousands of people ( think Disneyworld lines on thanksgiving holiday ) OMG the amount of people in this park on the night we visited completely spoiled the whole ambience of the place. Sadly profits before people and safety.
So disapointed as we were really looking forward to it but the huge crowds and wait times just killed it for us. My advice is if you want to visit during the hoildays go in the afternoon 2pm and leave on dusk probably beat the bulk of the crowds that way.

One could spend a day here. Something for all the family. The Suspension Bridge is obviously the highlight ( no pun intended) but there is much more to enjoy. The new steel Walkways, easy cliff climbs, a superb gift shop, cafes restaurants and a gorgeous yummy ice cream parlour. The entrance fee is a little steep ( still no pun intended ) but this can be offset by taking the courtesy coach at Canada Place to and from Capilano. This trip alone is gorgeous as you travel through Stanley Park and cross The Lion's Gate bridge ( cameras at the ready ). The trip alone is worth your time. I must give a special THANK YOU to Christabal in Customer services for helping my brother and me. Highly recommended. Enjoy.
